Notes & Reviews:

CPO's series of the symphonies and orchestral works of George Antheil (1900-1959) have shown him to be one of the 20th century's most important composers. Premiered in Denver in 1954, The Brothers places the biblical story of Cain and Abel in working-class postwar America. While Antheil's operas were usually well received, they did not find a place in the western opera repertoire until recently; thus, this recording marks The Brothers' European premiere.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Rebecca Nelsen (soprano); Ray M. Wade, E. Mark Murphy (tenor); William Dazely, Piotr Prochera (baritone).
